Thanks everyone!

Gozp, I will take a picture of my Honeyhart fruits when I get off work. There are no bumps on my fruit and the skin color is slightly more yellowish than other varieties.

Hi thread starter, is it ok with you to see your honeyheart cherimoya variety? I will appreciate a photo. Thanks

1031
A few pics...   These are all about 2 to 2.5 years in the ground.  Some grew like crazy, others were pretty slow to take off... I had strange soil conditions, things really started picking up when I started watering every other day in the summer.

Booth Cherimoya...



White Sapote, Cherimoya, Loquat .... you can see the valley below, it's about 200 feet lower, and usually 10 degrees colder.   ..Right now Weather Underground says it's 69 here, 57 to 61 down below. 



Sir Prize Avacodo


Valencia Pride Mango



Black Sapote


Your fruit trees looks stupendous & you got a nice location up there. You must be rich. Haha

And by the way what is the variety of your cherimoya? And what is the purpose of the circular thing you placed on your trees?

1032
This coming week we will be getting mid 40s temperature in the valley. Crossing my fingers.

I have not tasted the Red Sugar Apple, so I could compared the taste between them.  However, I really like the Vietnamese Sugar Apples which are very sweet and flavorful.  I would like to grow this tree in the near future.

I see. Do you know the difference inside of the regualr sugar apple vs the vietnamese sugar apple variety?

It looks like the Sugar Apple that I ate when I was a kid in Vietnam.  Since there are a lot of Vietnamese in Rosemead, Calif., I think it could be the Vietnamese Sugar Apple variety. Just my thought.

I guess that makes sense. Do you think the vietnamese sugar apple is superior to the kampong mauve(red sugar apple) ?

I grew up in the area... I have noticed winters to be colder than summer. 

.... just kidding, I just started paying attention to different micro climates in the area 3 years ago, and that's what I noticed about the warmer parts of the valley.   

Cherimoya and Avacodo seem to do fine... There's a huge mango around mid Tampa....  Best is to just drive around and check what kind of large fruit trees you spot in your neighborhood.

I checked your profile oit of curiosity. What cherimoya variety you have? And if u dont mind uploading photos of your tree? :)

Do you ship to California, USA?

I bought this on the ebay and the seller is from Rosemead, CA. I was wondering what sugar apple variety is this?

Thanks my new found home. :)

I'm at 615 ft (so a website says), and just put it in the ground (airlayered sunrise variety)  about two weeks ago.. just try it and see, that's what I do  ;D I haven't taken a picture of the soursop yet, because it's just planted and looks ugly.. but tiny new red leaves coming out already, so that's good.. elevation is not as important as the temps you are getting (I think).. I'm more concerned with the 100s we got during September and October.. with most of my plants already getting through a winter (high 30s to mid 40s), they should be ok.. that's my rule.. if it can last one whole winter and summer, then it should be ok..  ;D

I used this one

http://www.whatismyelevation.com

Here's my sugar apple tree too.. planted it last year and it had some fruit already this year.. Also, I'm growing all those that you said.. Cherimoya Honeyhart, Wax Apple, (Macopa? I'll look that up, another one to grow possibly.., and longan.. I have a biew kiew and kohala just planted too)

- just saw what macopa is.. mountain apple.. haha, no thanks.. one variegated wax jambu is good enough.. ;D

Sugar Apple


Longan


Elevation is definitely relative... I just know the valley seems to be warmer around 900 to 1300ft level... for other parts of LA, it would be different.

Yes, but it is colder in the valley when its winter..lol..

where are you from?

I have been spoiled for choice with soursop.Tha standard cuban fiberless locally should have been called cuban fiber.I have morado,Arusha and Lisa in the ground and doing well soon to be joined by whitman fiberless. Panama fiberless and Recife plants will need to be given away as I have  no more space for soursops.A seedling from a seeds Whitman himself sent to north queensland is growing in a yard locally. People speak of this tree in hushed tones out of respect it is supposed to be that good and productive unlike it's parent. I have been unable to secure a fruit or location of this specimen yet.

How many varieties do soursop have? Thanks

We call those Aratiles in the Philippines, more commonly known as Jamaican Cherry.
Those plants grow rapidly and they love warm weather.

From my understanding they don't like it below zero degrees. They may frost.

I wish you all the luck as they tend to grow wild.

Over time your sugar apple will bloom more fruits.
Did you hand pollinate it?
Where did you buy your sugar apple? for the size and price thats a steal

1049
And here is my biew kiew longan(not wind protected), wax apple & sugar apple. They are  still quite small.

Here are a photos of my guyabano & cherimoya honeyheart.

The leaves were severely burnt because of high temperature of 100s here in the valley.
I covered them with shade cloth & their condition improved.
I am crossing my fingers that they will survive for this coming winter.
